Make sure to get the Audiobook version read in her own screechy irritating voice.

“In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.” —Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.

She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath—both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.

The country as I described it is the set of documents and ideals that have kept this nation on course since 1776.


Sorry but this statement is fucking ridiculous and you should be embarrassed you wrote it.

From 1776 until the civil war the USA was a horror show of oppression and misery and FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR more corrupt than today. Read about
Tammany hall if you want your eyes opened. From 1865 until Teddy Roosevelt, this nation despised the working class and isolated them in company towns with company stores and company housing. The basic wages of a worker were barely enough to feed a family and most workers died on the job in their 40s or 50s. The child death rate was atrocious.

I would say the United States was only truly successful at excelling in the world after World War I and then even more so after World War II. The snapshot of American life betwee...


Until the civil war? Hah, the true corruption didn't begin until well after the civil war! Tammany hall was turn of the century business. Get your history straight, duck!

You have no idea how badly you've screwed up. Donald Trump is a narcissist who is utterly without morals. Everything he does will be to line his own pockets and screw over the working class. There are hundreds of examples ranging from Trump university to Trump screwing over small contractors with frivolous lawsuits to Trump going bankrupt and raping the banks through extortion to Donald Trump letting Obamacare collapse which will fall squarely on the middle class but you're going to pretend that none of that happened, that none of that is important, that actual provable history is some sort of fake news.


Trump has wanted the Presidency for years and has talked up the American System the entire time. He is the SAFEST hands for the presidency, because his Legacy and brand is all-important to him, just like it was to Washington. Hillary was looking for cash for serving special interests while in the White House.

She literally has no morals, and a long history of demonstrating so while in or close to power. "Superpredators".

FDR was also called a dangerous demagouge who would become a dictator - some still say that.

As for Tammany Hall, that's the Clinton Democrats, from DWS to Menendez. I hope to the heavens the Trial encompasses WHY Menendez tried to halt or poison the Medicare Fraud Investigation. Superdelegates stink of skulldruggery.

Where were you when the clinton worshippers were telling us that the loser "deserves" to be president because she won the popular vote?


Provide the reference that supports this assertion.

There is no reason to believe that Hillary would have won the popular vote if the popular vote had been the criteria for winning the election.

That said, there is and has never been an honest justification for the electoral college. The very institute is a manifestation of corruption and subverting the will of the people. The popular vote should determine the election and the electoral college should be completely and unconditionally disbanded before the next election starts. However, it would be unjust and disenfranchising to change election laws for an election during that election, so the laws must be changed for the next election.

Hillary Clinton says Bernie Sanders’s reluctance to concede the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination before the party’s convention was disrespectful, hurtful and stood in stark contrast to the way she handled her primary loss to Barack Obama in 2008.


Fuck Hillary. It's disrespectful to force one candidate onto the voters while subatoging the other, and preferred, candidate, and that's exactly what Hillary, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and the DNC did last election. That's why they lost.

They thought they could force the Bernie or Bust voters to vote Hillary. They were wrong. There is a lesson to be learned and it's not to continue saying fuck you to the general election voters.

Your statement is too vague to be meaningful or important. What constitutes many? A hundred? Ten thousand? Ten million?

Many people say that they like the taste of poop. That doesn't make them even a measurable minority.

Also, if your point is that a significant percentage of the American people think that the electoral college should be disbanded, well, that's a pretty justified belief. Are you actually defending the electoral college? Go on, justify its existence. Explain why our elections should not be decided upon the popular vote but rather a corrupt and archaic backroom deal making system. Go on.

Donald Trump is a narcissist and a bully. He would sign contracts with people much smaller than he was and fuck them over by tying them up in court in order to keep his costs down. Donald Trump is a hateful individual who is worthy of actual hatred. He has no redeeming qualities. His record in business life is abysmal. He created misery and despair wherever he went. Trump university sent hopeful people who just wanted a job into bankruptcy. Just fake news right? Everything I've listed here is WELL DOCUMENTED.

I despise this man and I truly believe that by any standard he's evil. Luckily he's an assclown, incompetent, pathetic sort of evil who is too stupid to turn the White House into an advantage.

That's my case. What kind of fucking case do you have against Hillary Clinton? Unproven assertions about Wall Street deals? Unproven assertions about the Clinton foundation? Benghazi still pissing you off? Hillary Clinton is a flag blowing in the wind. She has been ultra-responsive to what the voters want from her. She sided with the Iraq war because most of America did. She changed her views on gay marriage because most of America did. She voted for the vile bankruptcy reform act because a massive propaganda campaign convinced the people that bankruptcy was stealing. She might be incompetent and she might actually have brain damage but she's not evil. She's the worst sort of public servant in some ways but she's a competent administrator.

You don't have a case against Hillary Clinton and you never did. You hate her because it's in vogue. You despise her because you want to. You'll end up paying for it and I'll still be here saying "I told you so".

Name a single baseless accusation and I'll be happy to document it for you.

The Clinton hate society can't even do that. They don't have any accusations. They have vague allegations about vague crimes and vague corruption charges. Meanwhile she's never been hauled off to court for any of it.

Do you think the following is a lie? That someone just made it up? That Donald Trump, a man who sues over jokes, would allow this slander to remain if it wasn't true?

During the Atlantic City casino boom in the 1980s, Philadelphia cabinet-builder Edward Friel Jr. landed a $400,000 contract to build the bases for slot machines, registration desks, bars and other cabinets at Harrah's at Trump Plaza.

The family cabinetry business, founded in the 1940s by Edward’s father, finished its work in 1984 and submitted its final bill to the general contractor for the Trump Organization, the resort’s builder.

Edward’s son, Paul, who was the firm’s accountant, still remembers the amount of that bill more than 30 years later: $83,600. The reason: the money never came.

How about this? Is this another baseless accusation? Fake news?

Trump Miami Resort Management LLC settled with 48 servers at his Miami golf resort over failing to pay overtime for a special event. The settlements averaged about $800 for each worker and as high as $3,000 for one, according to court records. Some workers put in 20-hour days over the 10-day Passover event at Trump National Doral Miami, the lawsuit contends. Trump’s team initially argued a contractor hired the workers, and he wasn’t responsible, and counter-sued the contractor demanding payment.


I know Donald Trump's personality type. I've seen men like this all my life. You're defending a hateful bully because your ego wont let you do otherwise.

How do you think Donald Trump is going to help blue collar American when he's not done skull-fucking them yet?

Here's another unfounded and undocumented allegation. Fake news? Someone just out to make Trump look bad?

Juan Carlos Enriquez, owner of The Paint Spot, in South Florida, has been waiting more than two years to get paid for his work at the Doral. The Paint Spot first filed a lien against Trump’s course, then filed a lawsuit asking a Florida judge to intervene.

In courtroom testimony, the manager of the general contractor for the Doral renovation admitted that a decision was made not to pay The Paint Spot because Trump “already paid enough.” As the construction manager spoke, “Trump’s trial attorneys visibly winced, began breathing heavily, and attempted to make eye contact” with the witness, the judge noted in his ruling.

That, and other evidence, convinced the judge The Paint Spot’s claim was credible. He ordered last month that the Doral resort be foreclosed on, sold, and the proceeds used to pay Enriquez the money he was owed. Trump’s attorneys have since filed a motion to delay the sale, and the contest continues.

Enriquez still hasn’t been paid.

The Clintons are just so kind and lovely and selfless.

The Clinton Foundation was completely above board and shutting it down when she lost the election was pure serendipity.

Clinton totally didn't fearmonger about Superpredators while pushing to expand private prisons in the face of a huge decline in actual crime.

Even though the Clintons are so honest and forthright, with an incorruptible reputation, every Moroccan and Qatari Nobleman tries to buy 5 minutes with them for 6-7 figures.

Donald Trump is an evil man who has brutally misused blue collar workers. I've provided distinct and concrete and verifiable specific examples of HOW he's an evil man. Donald Trump fucks over contractors via the courts and when he's unable to do that, he fucks over contractors via Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

All you're going to do with Clinton is talk about internet meme bullshit and you can't prove any of it. That's the difference.

Contract disputes are common with contractors. Ask anyone who's hired one to do a home remodel, and see if they were treated fairly or even legally. Cost overruns, delayed finish dates, disappearing for weeks or months to do other jobs, and of course springing last minute extra charges are all common. I'd be pretty surprised if a businessman with as extensive holdings as Trump doesn't have quite a history of contract disputes.

You call an entire crew not getting paid anything a contract dispute?

I think you're full of shit. I think there have been people who have checked into this and are reporting that Donald Trump has THOUSANDS of theses lawsuits. Far more than any other company. If this was par for the industry, no one would take post-paid contracts from anyone on any project.

Anyway you're making excuses. I gave you the specifics that you were looking for after you called it (ridiculously) ad hominem. If the article I linked above is to be believed, and I see no reason why it shouldn't, Donald Trump files bankruptcy for the SOLE purpose of fucking over creditors and not due to insolvency. In fact being a cash business with games you can play with casino chips, (also documented) I have no doubt that Donald Trump manufactured his Chapter 11 filings while taking millions out the back door.

This man is a scumbag. Again I know the type. I've dealt with the type. He will ruin every student who paid 5 figures at Trump university and never shed one tear or have one regret.

There are plenty of solid accusations. They just don't get investigated.

Nice how the ex-Secretary of State gets to mix her business and personal emails, put them on a private server with a provider who isn't cleared or authorized to handle secrets, decides which ones to unilaterally delete, and skates off scot-free. While the wife of the FBI Director in charge of the investigation gets a fortune to run for office from a long time Clinton Ally AS the investigation is ongoing. Then the current AG meets her husband on the plane in a 'chance meeting' for an hour days before it's announced she won't be prosecuted., It comes out later the director already decided not to charge her before even interviewing her, months ahead of the official announcement. And no transcripts of the interview exist.

She then writes a book about how her losing with the entire media and all the big corporate money behind her and all the special treatment from the FBI was everybody else's fault but her own.
